Scaffolding Accidents at Work
In addition to neglect of safety guidelines, accidents most often occur because of faulty equipment, a failure to properly install the safety equipment, or a lack of knowledge pertaining to potential dangers of the job. Faulty equipment may consist of loose screws on supported scaffolds or cables that break upon suspended scaffolds. Safety harnesses may help to prevent injuries and death, but not all workers wear the appropriate equipment, and therefore are inadequately protected. Both state and federal laws were created to help protect workers from such avoidable dangers.
